Error while running PCKIDRetrievalTool to verify

Hi I am setting DCAP on my azure VM, using link https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/developer/articles/guide/intel-software-guard-extensions-dat...
MY VM is SGX enables and the OS is ubuntu 20.04 , the kernel is 5.15 (SO based on explainations no need to install DCAP driver) my first question is that I can not see DCAP-driver when I run : 

 

 

sudo dmesg | grep sgx
[ 0.555012] sgx: EPC section 0x2c0000000-0x3bfffffff
[ 2.295541] systemd[1]: Set hostname to <sgx-n03>.

[11468.575432] intel_sgx: second initialization call skipped

 

why?

another issue is that when I Install and config PCCS , and my  network_setting.conf is as follow:#

 

#############################################################
# PCCS server address
# support V3 version PCCS
#PCCS_URL=https://localhost:8081/sgx/certification/v3/platforms
# support V4 version PCCS
PCCS_URL=https://localhost:8081/sgx/certification/v4/platforms
# To accept insecure HTTPS cert, set this option to FALSE
USE_SECURE_CERT=FALSE
###############################################################


###############################################################
# when access pccs, user need provide the token
user_token =password
###############################################################


###############################################################
# Proxy settings:proxy type could be the following three types
# direct: means no proxy used
# default: system default proxy will be used
# manual: when this type was selected, user need provide the proxy_url

proxy_type = direct
#proxy_type = default
#proxy_type = manual
#proxy_url = http://proxy_url:proxy_port
############################################################### 

 

 

when I run PCKIDRetrievalTool to verify,I got this problem:

 

Intel(R) Software Guard Extensions PCK Cert ID Retrieval Tool Version 1.15.100.3

Warning: platform manifest is not available or current platform is not multi-package platform.
Error: unexpected error occurred while sending data to cache server.
pckid_retrieval.csv has been generated successfully, however the data couldn't be sent to cache server!

 

 

and in my pccs-server.log:

this is my kernel version:

 

cat /proc/version
Linux version 5.15.0-1029-azure (buildd@lcy02-amd64-076) (gcc (Ubuntu 9.4.0-1ubuntu1~20.04.1) 9.4.0, GNU ld (GNU Binutils for Ubuntu) 2.34) #36~20.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Dec 6 17:00:26 UTC 2022

 

 

I'm not sure what the message exactly means.Is it something related to BIOS? How can I solve the problem?

Hi leila888,

 

Thank you for your interest in Intel® SGX.

 

Linux kernel versions v5.11 and newer have the SGX driver that supports DCAP built in. You should be able to see the SGX device nodes available, ie:

 

ls -la /dev/sgx*

crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 10, 125 Aug 29 13:38 /dev/sgx_enclave

crw------- 1 root root 10, 126 Aug 29 13:38 /dev/sgx_provision

crw------- 1 root root 10, 124 Aug 29 13:38 /dev/sgx_vepc

 

Meanwhile, I am sorry that you faced issues when you install and config PCCS. Thank you for providing the logs, it is very useful.

There is an article that addresses your issue. Refer Article for more information.

 

You can update the BIOS on the system to the most recent BIOS available from the OEM to make the trusted computing base current.

 

Hope that the information provided is useful for you. Let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you.

 

Regards,

Ken

Dear KFPW_Intel,

Thanks for your prompt response,

This is the result of 

 ls -la /dev/sgx*
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 10, 125 Jan 6 08:11 /dev/sgx_enclave
crw-rw---- 1 root sgx_prv 10, 126 Jan 6 08:11 /dev/sgx_provision

/dev/sgx:
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 80 Jan 6 08:11 .
drwxr-xr-x 20 root root 3980 Jan 6 08:12 ..
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Jan 6 08:11 enclave -> ../sgx_enclave
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 Jan 6 08:11 provision -> ../sgx_provision

 

which I can not see 

crw------- 1 root root 10, 124 Aug 29 13:38 /dev/sgx_vepc

 

do you know what is the issue?

Besides, I have no Idea how can I update BIOS on VM, and as you can see my linux version is 

Linux version 5.15.0-1029-azure

not OEM. Would you please guide me with this?

Thanks so much

since your environment is one VM, it is expected result: there is no /dev/sgx_vepc.  And You can find this device node in host. 

 

You don't need update BIOS on VM. In general, the CSP should have done the registration for the platform, but I am not sure why your VM could NOT get PCK certs from Intel PCS. Need time to investigate it.

Thanks Junli_S_Intel

How can I investigate it? Is there any thing that I have to do?

Hi leila888,

 

I found this reference that may assist you for your use cases. Quickstart: Create Intel SGX VM in Azure Portal

 

Based on the reference,

 

"For DCsv3 and DCdsv3-series Azure VMs, the Intel certificates can only be fetched from THIM, as it is not possible to make direct calls to Intel service from the VMs"

 

It is suggested to contact their THIM service to assist your platform use cases. This github Azure DCAP Client source may assist you.

 

Regards,

Ken

Hi leila888,

 

Thank you for the your patience.

 

The logs are very useful, the error you encountered may due to the client could not get PCK certs from cache server (THIM or PCCS).

 

In order to get the PCK certs from the cache server, Quote Provide Library (QPL) will be used to fetch the certs. Please check which QPL is used, is it the Intel or Microsoft version?

 

If it is the Intel version QPL, there is one configuration file /etc/sgx_default_qcnl.conf that you need to provide your cache server URL correctly in order to be able to work.

 

If it is the Microsoft version QPL, please check with Microsoft and this Azure DCAP Client source may assist you for your use cases.

 

Regards,

Ken
